“She was an Indian Summer ..With Flowers in her Hair…” – what a great way to start a song and that’s how HOAX begun their latest single “Indian Summer”. Melodically beautiful and lyrically so deep, so real and strangely so surreal while being such a part of the human nature. This talented band is creating music that is true, honest while not loosing that spark of creativity and uniqueness that could make or break a band. In this case it is definitely making, they have become a band I follow and listen (while writing this post I heard this song about 8-10 times; it’s so good). With a soundscape that has splashes of indie rock while remaining a nice pop track that is taken to the clouds with Mike Raj’s voice.
Ironically released this song on the last day of summer. A year ago I learned that an Indian Summer is an abnormal period of hot weather that follows the summer months. This became a metaphor for three stories from my life where I was involved with someone where the connection should have ended much sooner but didn’tMike about 'Indian Summer'
